I started the day off with another bowl of overnight oats. Today, they really reminded me of peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough 🙂 Who wouldn’t want cookie dough for breakfast!
I then did a series of workouts from Self.com since it was dark and I don’t feel comfortable running outdoors in the dark. After my breakfast and workout it was then time to take Oliver and Sophie (the dogs I am taking care of) to the Pet Hotel. Oliver has some anxiety issues, so although the car ride was not horrible I couldn’t help but feel like I was doing something wrong the whole time because of Oliver’s whimpering! His mom warned me of his love/hate relationship with car rides and assured me that is how he usually acts last night.
I then came back to the apartment and it was time to pack. I gave myself a goal because I like playing games with myself in order to make tasks go by quicker. The goal was to be done packing before 10am, and if I accomplished that goal I would get to run 3 miles! I know I’m weird, and that doesn’t sound like much of a reward, but sitting in a car for 7 hours makes me antsy.
Well…Goal accomplished! Not only that, in the middle of my run I decided to really push my speed and ran the 3 mile loop in 22 minutes and 12 seconds. Lately, I had been completing it in 24ish minutes. Beating my time felt like such a great accomplishment!
Now, it’s time to hit the road jack and head to the reunion!!
